I am learning to be virtuous
Humility without humiliation
Suffering without pain
Sorrow turns to joy
Love without hate
Sadness without tears
Laughing without smiling
I am learning strength in weakness
Courage within fear
Light within the darkness
Patience in standing still
Silence in a crowd
Speaking without talking
Listening without hearing
Seeing with eyes closed
A new sense of being
